They were pleased with the Mayor' s actions but were rather vo cal in their criticism of the police . They did not connect the outbreak with our organizat ion or the efforts being made to help b uild a better Atlanta. If y ou will review the following s ugge stions whi c h were made over and over again, I am convinc e d :re·, ,,,.:_ 1.. 1 als o recognize that the grass . root leadersh i p a s w2 ... ... as t . . e Surnmi t Leadership was trying to advise how to stop the in ci den t and not to cure long-range needs. Recommendation s for E ergeney Actio 1. A number of y outh i n th e Boul evard area d o not approve of some o f the methods being used to call attention to grievan ces , wh ich have resu l ted in violence. Accordingly, they have organized t hemsel ves into the Boulevard Northeast Youth Counci l and would like to me€ t with some responsible City o fficials to discuss t hese gr ievances. 2. Their immediate concern is i n regard t o recreation. Succ esses evidenced . by the Summer Re c r eation Program and Playlots have i n s pired them to seek a ction . Sever al vacant l ot s o n Bou levard offer poss i bil ities o f be ing us ed for such pro grams which s h ould include faciliti es for dances , games and other types of entertainment. 3. There is considerable concern al so a bout funeral a rrangements f or ~ ulet Varner, Jr. , t he y oun g man who was k illed. The y.:::,-:.;;.~1.9 people feel st r o ngly that the public o f fic ials, as well a s the community, s houl~ h ave an opportunity to join the family of the deceased i n a mutual expressi o n of grie f . 4. The positio n o f the family , e specially the deceased y outh's mother, i n being abl e to provide an appropriate burial is in questio n and the interest t aken in. this matte-r is of importance. 5. Th e me mbers of the Youth Council· would lik e to have badg es t o pin on new members and handbills to pass out which wou l d show their interest in non-v i o l ence a nd g ood human relations. �I. -- ,I Mr. Jordan -3- _September 1 4 , 1966 6. It is recommended that integrated police squad cars be used in the area. 7. There should be an investigation of t he Grady Hosp i ta l ambulance service wh ich is reported to have failed to pick up the two Negro y ouths at first but to ok the white policeman. The results of t he investigation should be publicized. 8. Questions are also bJi ng raised a s to why t h e doors of the Georgia Baptist Hospital,wh ich is nearby, were not opened to the Negro victims of t he S aturday n ight shooting. 9. Th ere are also q ue stions as to why there are n o reports on the condition o f the se c ond youth , the y oung man who was shot on Capito l Avenue and continued announ c ements and steps taken to bring about justice in both cas e s. The arrests o f suspect s hav e less ened the tension greatly and especially the fr equent and wide - spread illewscasts in regard thereto. I It took a great deal of digging f o r our local leadership to c ome up with l o ng- range corrective measures. Basi cally they made few emergency r e commendat ions that have not already been di scussed many times by the lo cal adv iso ry commi·c.tees, the Citi zens Centr al Adv isory Council and t he EOA Board. However, it was plain that they stil l believe that their long-range answer to Atlanta's problem is to bu i ld a great city which wil l give much effo rt to accompli sh th e f ollowi ng. 1. coop erat ion o f all majo r employers to bLild a ci ty whe re equal employment opportuni tie s are a matt er of normal c ou rse where every citizen ma y adv ance i n ac cordanc e with his e du c ation, training , experi en ce a n d ability. It wa s clear in every meeting th at a dequ ate jobs and job opportunities were conside r ed probably t h e most important recommendati o ns made. 2. That the number and quality o f job training courses be increa s ed s o that every u nemployed pe rson will have the op po rtu n ity for advancemen t a nd for a good job. 3. Th a t th e Atlanta educat i onal p r o grams co nt i nue to imp rove so th at eve ry p erson wi l l h a ve an opp o r tunity to rema i n in s cho ol and t o rec e ive qu ality education in accordance with his ability . �------ ----::-.:::!...--=·- _________, ,I Mr. Jordan - 4- Septembe r 1 4 , 1966 4.

Mayor will be a fool if he doesn't ban all cameras in the area - especially TV - - the news coverage is 11 egging 11 the people on and exciting them. He and other reporters (he is sure) would be thankful for being banned - danger involved, etc. However, they feel they must go in and cover the story as long as they have not been banned. 2. Mayor _is in increasing danger. According to the news people, this week is really going to be a bad week. One reason is because Martin Luther King is in town. He is holding a meeting tonight and they feel this could be dangerous simply because of the number of people involved. They feel if the Mayor could offer him some way to save face without demonstrating this would help. He needs an out without being labeled Uncle Tom 11 • The 11 grass rooters made the following observations: 1. They admire the Mayor for going to the scene . 2. The Mayor's psychology would be much bette r if he would go there and just liste n to the people and let them enume rate their problems. They say he talks to the people like a step father looking down his nose. He doesn't talk to them like they are humans . He was very badly criticized for leaving Foote Street Church yesterday befor e the people could talk to him . They say he said what he had to say and they would not stay and hear them, sayin g 11 he had to go - he was a very busy man and had things to do 11 • 3.

We can be thankful there were no serious injuries. Some 10 police officers received minor injuries, mostly as a result of tear gas.

We will probably hold a meeting between 5 and 6 this afternoon with our project directors and Chairman of all our local advisory committees with the hope we can find out from them what we might do. If all this works satisfactorily I might want to have a Board meeting tomorrow and then present the City with a series of project requests which the Mayor might want to make to Mr. Sargent Shriver through our local EOA committee. We feel this might ·give us a chance to get sufficient funds to do some of the things which might help the Mayor in a big way. I will keep you posted as we move along. Please do not have any more reports coming back that you are in the hospital. This gave us all a big fright. We are all proud of what you are doing. Please e xcuse the hurriedly written notes .

MAYOR OF ATLANTA On Civil Diso r de r in Atlanta, Tuesday, September 6, 1966 T h e disorders in the Summerhill neighborhood in Southeast Atlant a l as t evening were the result of a deliberate attempt by certain members of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (Snick) to •i I' ' I .¢ reate an incident of this very nature. I i ' I We can be thankful there were no serious injuries. Some 10 police officers received minor injuries, mostly as a result of tear gas. Assessment of property damage has not been completed, but it does not appear to be too severe. Five City police cars were damaged as a result of bricks or bottles thrown through windows. Seventy-two arrests were made by the Police Department. C onditj,ons at this time indicate that the violence has ended and calm exists _throug_1tout the area •. The Atlanta Police Department is now working two twelve-hour shifts until further notification by Chief Jenkins. All off-duty firemen have been placed on alert. T he firemen on ,duty during the night responded promptly and efficiently to sever al calls in the area. The spark of violence ignited by a few reckless and irresponsible individuals t ou ched off an explosion of civil disorder that shattered Atlanta 1 s long record of r acial amity. II I ·I I ' �Page 2 I must again commend the members of the Atlanta Police Department for their prompt response and handling of this situation. The citizens of Atlanta, and especially the good citizens of SummerhillMechanicsville, can be justly proud of their police officers this morning. . I am not talking from hearsay when I say that every citizen of Atlanta owes a debt of wholehearted gratitude to our dedicated police officers, for I was personally in the thick of the disturbance throughout those frightful hours of mob hysteria. No one need make charges to me about police brutality during this disorder, I saw plenty of brutality, but it was being used against the police officers, not by them. From what I heard with my own ears and saw with my own eyes in the center of this melee, I feel certain that hundreds of normally good citizens were inflamed 5out of their normal senses. They were victimized by those who sought to incite violence. We sinc e r elr appreciate the action of Governor Carl Sanders and the Georgia Department of Public Safety for the backup men and equipment provided to us. It is a tragedy that a few irresponsible and misdirected youths have such utter disregard and contempt for their fellow man that they place the lives and property of innocent citizens in serious jeopardy. �

Sweat, Jr. Director of Governmental Liaison City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Dan: A committee called on me this morning along with representatives from one of our projects suggesting ways in which our city might help quieten our people. Rev. Albert R. Dreisbach, Jr. and a young Negro Baptist preacher were the ones that did most o f the talking. The first thing they said probably the Mayor should do is to quit playing the part of a hero. They are afraid he might be hurt and it could cause a real riot. They suggested that the Mayor quit telling the m about our great city and what we hope to accomplish. This calls for a high degree of reasoning on their part and at the present the people are acting from emotional upset and fright . They said the Mayor s hould stop calling on the Summit Leadership and several l eaders such a _s Re v. Borders a nd Rev. King, Sr. He claims the young people are not impressed and assume they are speaking for the white people . They further sugges t e d that the police try to be less aggressi v e. �Mr. Sweat -2- September 12, 1966 They also wanted to know why the Georgia Baptist Hospital was not used to help the boys in trouble. They also suggested the Mayor quit blaming all of this on SNCC as there are a lot of people that also dislike SNCC that are emotionally involved and the more he persecutes SNCC at this time the more these people will come to the aid of SNCC. At one time they even suggested that they wished Carmichael was out of jail. One of the main ·stories they were fussing about was that two Grady ambulances came to the rescue of the police but almost ignored the Negroes that had been shot. The nex t thing they pointed out is that the Mayor has not e xpressed great concern about the second Negro that is wounded. This is what is bothering the community. Some think he has died. Frankly , these are things that most anyone could tell y ou, however, when I pressed them for positive things they could only suggest five ideas which they think may work. 1. Have the Mayor report often b y TV, radio and newspaper on his concern for the second wounded Ne gro. Give as much proo f as possible that he is still doing well, etc. 2. Have the May or make himsel f available for some of the members to come in and gripe to him . They feel at this time some of these people need to ventilate (?) on t h ei r own . It would only mean the Mayor would listen to some o f these peop l e and really let th e m te l l t he t h e sto ry . 3. Have t he May or i n vestigate why th e ambul ances did n ot a rri ve to pick up t he Negro b o ys (i f t hi s is t r ue) . 4. Try t o p ick up some quick succes s s t o ri es o f t h i ng s that are b e i n g ac complished right n ow . 5. Have repo rts come o u t o ft e n o n the det e ctives e fforts on trying t o find the murderers . Let it b e known by all the pre ss media that eve ry effo rt is being made . �Mr. Sweat -3- September 12, 1966 I realize there is not a thing said here that you are not aware of already, but since this was the consensus of the group I thought I would send it on to you. Under separate letter I am giving you a report on some of the things we are now doing. Sincerely yours, C. O. Emmerich �
